Changes, Chapter 2, 3, 4, et al.

See this cute little boy?

Notice anything different about him? No?

He is officially potty trained.
Just call him Captain Underpants!
Good bye diapers!

(Well, good bye Carter diapers ... we still have little Chloe size ones :) )

Speaking of Chloe ...

Notice anything different about this little cutie?


Well, it seems to me like every day I can notice something different about her. Today she discovered pulling up to the TV and using the shelf as a teether ... Daddy will not be happy ....

...AND, as far as changes go
... here is a box of toys and clothes that Chloe will never use again.
In fact, these are things that none of our children will ever use again ... (sniff sniff)

Moving right along lest I start bawling like a baby...

See this pile of dirt?
(Now known as our garden ...)

Well, tonight we ate the following with our dinner - all from this pile of dirt ...

Strawberries!

And lettuce for our salad!

And - some freshly picked flowers from a special little girl!

One more very important change:

See this tired Mama?


She is now getting a full night's sleep!

See? Sometimes change IS a good thing.

Yeah!! Yeah for change! THAT is change I can believe in...although it all goes by so fast. I don't like that part. :(
Congratulate Audrey on her earrings, Carter on his big boy undies, and Chloe for her many scooting and pulling-up adventures...and yourself for several good nights of sleep in a row. Life is good!
Love you~

Great post! I'm so jealous of the bounty of your garden! Nice work! That looks like it would be so fun for the kids. We stick to peppers, tomatoes, basil, and a big ole raspberry bush. But, next year, I may "branch" out a bit (ha ha).
